LLNPP and Tourism Partner to host: Winter Residents So-
The Ministry of Tourism each year, hosts an Annual Winter Residents Party, which began almost 30 years ago in a number of islands throughout the Bahamas as a way to show appreciation to Winter Residents for the confidence shown in their choice to invest and live in The Bahamas, with all the other choices available worldwide. This year’s party in Central Eleuthera was hosted at the Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve venue off of the Banks Road in Governor’s Harbour, centered at their Education Pavilion. Preserve Manager, Falon Cartwright, welcomed her guests and used the opportunity to inform the group about the history of the park and the vision behind its creation by fellow winter resident, Mrs. Shelby White.

The Ministry team and the Preserve partnered to host members of the Winter Resident community at the 2017 annual afternoon party.
The afternoon was catered by Pauline Johnson of Unique Village Restaurant and authentically Eleutheran crafts were displayed by artisan, Emily Munnings. Sweet Bahamian music echoed across the Pavilion from the The Island Flavour band and party-goers were also treated to a fashion show, highlighting local original creations by seamstress, Verda Gardiner.
